    A single 1/60 shot is one thing, how about another?

    Nice work so far, Will, given the conditions. Pylon work was clearly hurt by the smoke in the air. There's no way that great shot of Steve passing the YAK was going to really be technically perfect in those somewhat backlit smoky conditions. Congratulations on a good year -- hope you feel good about what you accomplished.

    Neal,
    Last year was a big learning experience. This year, well, the results speak for themselves. I've processed perhaps 5% of my stuff, and I know there is more good stuff to be found. Was the success partly due to the equipment I was using? Perhaps. The Nikon D810 is a pretty bitchin camera body. I mean really, two nice shots of the unlimiteds shot at 1/60 sec, what are the odds of that? Of the 8 shots that I tried at that speed, 4 were soft, two were totally useless, and 2 were the ones I posted. I've got some sport class stuff from the hillside that are pretty sweet as well. The one disappointment was the stuff I shot from Pylon 4. I tried to shoot "normal" 1/320 or so and most of the shots are total garbage. Clearly I need to shoot from there more to really get a feel for it. (Perhaps I should have tried the Nikon 300PF F4 VR, that lens looks to be really cool, and its tiny. It might be the perfect lens for up there) I know I've got some good F1, Biplane and T6 stuff to go through, as well as the TFL display. In short, yes I'm happy with the stuff I shot.

    Will

    They moved Pylon 4 up onto the hill, didn't they? I always found the former location difficult to work from because I couldn't see the Racers coming til they were almost on me. There often didn't seem to be enough time to "acquire the target" in time for the camera (and me!) to settle down and track...

    Yes, they did. Right to the top of the hill that they used to "pop over".
    You'll get your chance, smart guy!

    Yes, its up on the hill, but getting a pylon shot from there is really hard, I couldn't find a spot far enough back and low enough to get anything in the frame aside from the pylon. No one was low enough the day I was there. You still can't see the racers coming from a spot where you might get a pylon shot. The lighting is great, the sound is amazing, but it seems like getting any sort of background in the shot is easier said than done, unless you are shooting them as they turn for 5. Its a spot that has a learning curve, that is for sure.

    Big Jim, awesome shots. I really like the one with Full Noise and the pylon. Thanks for posting.
